Besides,any puppet can have presence when you put them in a $1,000 dollar crap dress,my dear man.
my thoughts exactly. It must be bad for all the models who he uses in his shows to hear he thinks they have no presence.

I think he's confusing presence with people knowing who you are. I always thought a campaign was supposed to reflect every customer not just the celebrities who get the clothes for free, think his clothes 'are like, so pretty' and jump on the fashion bandwagon whenever there is a party or gala. I love how he just dissed the women who do his shows twice a year and mostly, are genuine fans of his clothes. I too am harbouring a growing hatred of this man.

i think that perhaps he is just "towing the line" so to speak.what he is doing is good business and to come out with "celebrities sell more handbags" would not impress those who are supposed to buying said hand bags and does not enhance the image of a company that is supposed to be about exclusive luxury not whoring it's wears to the masses.so he just generates a highly subjective reason to justify the use of celebrities to obscure the fact that it is for sales purposes.
perhaps i have become a little too cynical.

well personally i would rather see an intresting creative person in clothes than just a model, who is esentially a good maniquen, but the aim of the use of celebrities on advertising is not creativety it's $$$$$$$$$.....

What gets me is the recent Marc Jacobs (i.e. not LV) campaign - he's using people so "real" it looks like Fashion for the Terminally Dumpy! I suppose that's the opposite side of the celebrity coin, equally overdone!

i agree. i think i am beating a dead horse here, but i do think it is pretty uncreative most of the time to have actors of the covers and it is $$..but i don't see how people could think models are underdogs.hardly! if that is the case.

I do like seeing models in campaigns, but it might not sell as a celebrity.
totally agree
